Rolex GMT Master II Cerachrom Bezel

What Is A GMT Master Cerachrom Bezel?

Rolex developed the Cerachrom ceramic bezel to improve the bezel's lasting beauty and functionality when exposed to the most extreme conditions. Cerachrom is virtually impervious to scratches. Its colour is unaffected by ultraviolet rays and keeps its lustre.

Cerachrom originates from the ancient Greek word for colour Chrom, a contraction of the word ceramic. Watches' bezels are one of the first things people notice about them. The quality of the bezel, therefore, has a direct effect on the rest of the instrument.

The Cerachrom, which Rolex uses in its GMT Master timepieces, was debuted in 2007. Cerachrom is a combination of the words ceramic and chrom, meaning color in Greek.

It introduced Cerachrom with the GMT-Master II 116710BLNR model, a first for the brand that used aluminium as the bezel insert material until then. The aluminium inserts' soft structure exposed them to scratches over the years, and they eventually lost their original color.

Ceramic bezels are designed to be both durable and attractive, but not all ceramic bezels offer the same protection, durability and beauty. Due to their large surface areas, bezels are vulnerable to physical impacts and external factors like UV rays, and lose their flawless appearance over time.

To guard against damage, watch manufacturer take advantage of all the material available to them. Rolex Cerachrom stands out from its competitors in terms of both durability and aesthetics with its patented ceramic production technology.

The Cheapest Rolex GMT Master II is priced at $9,500, it is the GMT Master II 126710BLRO Pepsi. It could be pretty hard to find it in stock at a Rolex authorized store. The second cheapest Rolex GMT is the 126710BLNR Batman at $9,700, also are to find in stock.
